Advent Calendar: The Christmas Tree

For many years my grandparents had an artificial Christmas tree which I don't remember in great detail. However, there was always one thing that fascinated me about it and that was the sheet of cotton wool which was placed around the base in an attempt to mimic snow. I think my gran used to decorate the tree and there was a foot-or-so high statue of Father Christmas which used to adorn their front room too.

It's always been my job to decorate the tree in our house but I have to admit that after more than 20 years, I finally got fed up and so we bought a miniature tree, complete with decorations, which I just have to whip out of the box and plonk on the hearth. Simples!

This is our original Christmas Tree
